Mixed Fruits Custard


Usually people especially children don’t like to consume fruits in their original form, they prefer juices instead. But the nutrition and health benefits fruits can provide in their unprocessed form, they get destroyed while preparing juices and during processing. They supply high fibrous diet, roughage, many innumerable nutrients and vitamins when consumed unprocessed. But people usually don’t prefer eating them as whole; the reason might be they don’t like the pulpy mushy content of fruits and the really luring lip-smacking part of fruits appears only their juice.
